Answer: Lettuce needs ample water and nutrients to grow well. You might try adding compost or other organic matter to the soil and run some basic soil tests to check the nutrients and pH. Next, keep in mind that lettuce is a cool season crop (it will not grow much in very cold weather, though) and resents hot weather. Once the weather turns warm, the lettuce tends to turn bitter and try to go to seed. For this reason, plant it very early in spring and again as a fall crop. You might also want to experiment with different varieties and see what grows best for you.
